Judas Iscariot’s attitude and choices determined his destiny, yet God was able to use his sin – even his betrayal of Jesus – to achieve His purposes. In this study of Mark 14:10, we learn that God fulfills His sovereign plan without interfering with the individual’s freedom of choice. Alistair Begg reminds us that the treachery of Judas is a warning to the Church against the “profession of Christ without the possession of Christ.”

Joseph of Arimathea was wealthy, well-respected, and religious. He was also a secret disciple of Jesus until the events of the crucifixion brought him into the open with a courageous request to care for the body of Jesus. The cross of Christ confronts us just as it confronted Joseph. Alistair Begg challenges us to consider whether we are living as secret disciples and to respond to the good news of the Gospel in repentance and faith.

Our culture has become increasingly preoccupied with living forever. But the Bible tells us that we have a created beginning and an appointed death. In part two of the message, “Gospel Conversations”, Alistair unpacks how Christians should remember this themselves, and then how to share the reality of these two truths with friends and co-workers.

When someone you love passes away, there’s a natural season of grief and sorrow that follows. The Apostle Paul addresses this process in his letter to the Thessalonians in a passage that brings hope and healing to Christians who suffer loss today.

Through the eyes of a college student, the years ahead can seem limitless. However, death is certain and so is the ultimate judgment that will accompany it. In a world that has embraced athletes as heroes for proclaiming safe promiscuity, Alistair Begg instructs a student audience to stand up and acknowledge that there is no such thing as safe sin. The Bible teaches that we live our brief lives facing the reality that we will ultimately stand before the bar of God’s judgment.

In today's society few topics can quell a lively discussion like the subject of death and dying.

Despite this reality, the Christian can welcome it with hope and assurance. Listen as Alistair Begg uncovers the reason for the believer's hope and broaches the sensitive issues of cremation and the body/soul connection.

|scripture||1 Corinthians 15:1-58|
In every generation one subject remains a source of fascination and fear -DEATH. Is it really the end? What happens afterwards? At a time when people are increasingly preoccupied with stories of "out-of-body" experiences and are wondering about reincarnation, the fifteenth chapter of First Corinthians is unique and striking in its impact. Here is the classical Christian discussion of the most vital subject. We do well to pay careful attention so that in a matter marked by great confusion, we might learn to speak with clarity and conviction. In learning how to die, we find the key to learning how ...
